It’s a World familiar to Maria Alyokhina, a member of feminist art ensemble Pussy Riot who spent nearly two years as an inmate for her part in a 2012 punk protest in a Moscow cathedral against President Vladimir Putin.

LONDON (Reuters) – British consumers are trying to spread out the cost of Christmas by buying products earlier as they try to manage household budgets in the face of record inflation, the boss of supermarket group Sainsbury’s, said on Thursday. “One of the key things that we’re clearly seeing is customers wanting to spread out the cost of Christmas, shopping earlier where they can, buying little and often as they plan for Christmas,” Chief Executive Simon Roberts told reporters after Sainsbury’s published first half results.

Turkey’s annual inflation rate accelerated to 85.51 percent in October, its highest level since 1997, official data showed Thursday, as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has defended unorthodox policies to combat a cost-of-living crisis.
